So the "Father/Son" play is finished! Still haven't figured out a title yet, but I'm happy with my process this time around, more so than other things that I've written.
Also, I want to try something a little different this time before submitting and that's to have actors read the script before making another draft of the play. A little bit of workshopping if you will. I know what it sounds like in my head but thats not whats going to be on the stage. Pretty excited at the prospect! Hopefully, I can get something done by the end of the week. Deadline for postmark is Mar. 15th.
I've been working with Angela Beasley on a show about Juliette Gordon Low. Very fun show and it's performed for senior citizens around Savannah. Nice having a consistent show to do with her again. I like working for her because it's a reminder that a performance should be fun, regardless of what you're doing. You should have a good time. Or at least try to.
Last, but not least, last night I auditioned and was asked to play Jack in a production of The Boys Next Door at Bay Street Theatre! Get to work with that crowd again and I get to act opposite Chris Soucy, a feat that Savannah theatre hasn't seen in TEN YEARS!
I'm at the age now where I get to say that about people. I think it's a good thing. It means that I haven't given up. It means that I've worked hard at something, in a sense. And given other things that have happened in my life, that means quite a bit.
